The SK-5 Blackbird Noir Survival Knife #7500PC by OKC has been upgraded for 2014 with a non-reflective and rust resistant black epoxy powder coating. The design of the SK5 Blackbird Noir is clever but simple design, making the SK-5 an essential tool for hardcore bushcrafters and woodsmen noobs alike. The Black Bird knife series was designed by custom designer and sheath-maker Paul Scheiter for maximum performance with an elegant simplicity and the signature elements of a center point blade, straight back profile, and flat heel for maximum utility.
The Black Bird SK-5 Noir blade is crafted from 154CM. This steel is American made, known for its superior toughness, edge-retaining ability, sharpness and corrosion resistance. The SK-5's blade is 0.13 inch thick and features a full-taper grind. The perimeter of the Micarta handle is rounded to provide a comfortable grip and is secured to the knife tang with stainless steel Allen screws. The Blackbird SK-5 comes with a MOLLE compatible sheath that features a rigid protective insert. The sheath also features a belt loop so that it may be worn on the hip in the traditional belt mount configuration. The Black Bird Noir knife is proudly made in the U.S.A. by Ontario Knife Company.
